Hollis Johnson went to McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King. Here’s what he found.
I decided to contrast the signature sandwiches of the fast-food “big three” — the Whopper at Burger King, the Big Mac at McDonald’s, and the Dave’s Single at Wendy’s — with one question in mind: Which chain truly makes the best flagship burger?
I would have gone for the premium burger at each joint, but that’s just me.
The winner of the signature-burger showdown has to be the inimitable Big Mac. The Whopper comes in at a solid second place, as a rather dignified yet somewhat humdrum flagship. And in a shocking third comes the Dave’s Single. Wendy’s usually competes with the best of burgers, but the haphazard prep dragged down the tasting experience.
My preference is the Ultimate Cheeseburger at Jack in the Box.
